It is with a heavy heart that we write that Grant Imahara has passed away. Grant was an electrical engineer and roboticist and worked with Lucasfilm’s THX, Industrial Light and Magic divisions. He was also a huge part of “Mythbusters” and “White Rabbit Project.” He was 49.
At this time all we know is that he passed suddenly and unexpectedly due to a brain aneurysm. A spokesperson for Discovery said:
“We are heartbroken to hear this sad news about Grant. He was an important part of our Discovery family and a really wonderful man. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.”
“Mythbusters” stars Adam Savage, Kari Byron and Tory Belleci have shared photos along with their heartfelt thoughts about Imahara’s passing.
The Hollywood Reporter broke the news about his passing, without waiting for permission from his family.
Imahara was a friend of many of us here at Nerdbot, and we are gutted. 2020 has been a terrible year already and with the news of Grant’s passing is now even worse. He will be missed.
